Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River on Thursday inaugurated the judicial panel of enquiry headed by a former Chief Judge of the State’s High Court, Justice Michael Edem.

The seven man panel has since swung into action directing the public to submit petitions within two week’s starting from October 23, 2020.

“The general public is by this notice informed that His Excellency, the Governor of Cross River State has inaugurated the Judicial Panel of Enquiry into Police Brutality and Restitution in the State.

“To this effect, the Panel has swung into action and is inviting written memoranda, petitions from victims, families and representatives of victims of police brutality.

“Such written petitions/memoranda are to reach the Panel within two weeks beginning from the 23rd day of October 2020 in fourteen hard copies and one electronic copy (soft copy). Submission should be made at the Office of the Attorney-General and Hon. Commissioner for Justice and the envelop should be clearly addressed to the Secretary, Panel of Enquiry into Police Brutality and Restitution,” read a statement signed by the secretary of the panel.

There was no formal notification on how the panel members were selected with sources saying Mr. Ayade cherry picked members.

The members are:
